↟↟↟ If change is the only constant, letting go is the only way to be free... #wildbynature

↟↟↟ Though it took some time, meditation has grown to be a part of my daily practice, and now I honestly can’t imagine living without it.

It has helped me find peace amidst the storms this life so often puts us through, and is my favorite way to get in touch with my heart and creativity.

I also try to spend as much time outdoors as I can, if not daily. Feeling connected to the earth, well it definitely keeps me sane, and is my greatest source of happiness and inspiration.

I love following my guided meditations on my @aftershokz because they allow me to combine my meditation with the ambient noise and sounds of the world around me, be it a river flowing or the song of the wind. Moments like these, the presence and peace, are truly like a breath of fresh air... #wildbynature #shokzsquad

↟↟↟ Wandering through the magical Autumn wonderland of the Adirondacks... hopefully headed back up here this week to soak it all in one last time before winter makes her way in #wildbynature

↟↟↟ Hi! I’m Allee. It’s been a while since I’ve really introduced myself to you guys. For everyone that’s been following my journey for a while, I have so much love for you all, and for those that are new, welcome! You’re loved too🤗

My journey has been a wild one, and I wouldn’t have it any other way... I’m an outdoor lifestyle photographer, but really my photos are a channel to express everything that matters most to me.

My spirituality is my guiding and driving force in my life. And that’s all thanks to nature. In fact, I have nature to thank for my life. Getting out and exploring Mama Earth helped me reconnect with myself, has brought the most incredible people into my life, and brought to me a new understanding of this life and Universe that I never imagined could exist…

I love traveling alone, and with friends. I'm an extroverted introvert, and very much an empath, so my solo time is crucial to recharge. Family is everything to me.

I’ve realized no body really knows what they’re doing and no one way works for everyone. So the only way to be successful in this life is to find out what success means to you.

My greatest hope is that by sharing my experience creating my dreams, I can help others know they are not alone on this journey, and to never give up. One of my favorite quotes is, "You will never be able to escape from your heart. So it’s better to listen to what it has to say" ➳ Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

↟↟↟When we first walked down to the shore the fog was so thick you could barely see the water lapping up along the lake’s edge.

I headed back to the campsite to gather everything for breakfast, the crisp Autumn morning had us jonesing for a hot cup of joe.

Upon returning to our little rocky beach the fog lifted revealing the most vibrant and beautiful trees lining the shore. We had found this place completely on accident in the dark the night before...

Moments like these, alongside human and furry friends, makes sleeping in a tent on a cold rainy night always worth it. And my @rei gear, especially my beanie, makes escaping my sleeping bag to catch these crispy morning views that much more enjoyable 🍁 #optoutside #rei #sponsored #ruffingitREI #giftedbymavrck

↟↟↟Chased the Fall colors up to the Adirondacks this weekend! After a very long week, escaping into the mountains to hike with my brother and an epic crew from @eastcoastcreatives was just what the doctor ordered.

We left at 5am under the stars, drove through rain and fog, arrived at the base of Mt. Van Hoevenberg to a cloudless sky, only for the rain to come back through once we reached the summit. You really never know what you’re going to get with New England weather...

Needless to say, I was super grateful to slide into my @dakine Valentina jacket, staying warm and dry while we enjoyed the view. #wildbynature #LifeWithDakine #sponsored

↟↟↟she’s an explorer,
unafraid to travel
within her heart and mind,
ready to discover new spaces
to heal - releasing burdens
and planting wisdom wherever
her awareness takes her ➳ yung pueblo #wildbynature

↟↟↟This time last year I found myself in Washington with this babe who I had been traveling with for two weeks, known for only three, connecting with incredible people and places in a way that would ultimately change my life forever...

Soon I’ll be hitting the road once again taking a leap of faith, and I can only imagine this time will be equally as magical. Funny how things come full circle...

I genuinely believe that life happens in cycles. And these cycles serve us by repeating until we’ve learned and grown in the ways we are meant in order to be the best version of ourselves.

Every year, every day, every moment is a chance to choose differently. To choose the life you want for yourself, to choose happiness. It starts with small choices, choosing the right food, choosing to send that extra email, to run that extra mile...

And all these choices add up, and as you make them you grow stronger, and one day you find yourself able to make the harder choices, those that at first might push you out of your comfort zone but inevitably lead you to a life you love... #wildbynature #wildernessculture

↟↟↟Cooking dinner and taking in an epic sunset at @acadianps up in Maine after spending the afternoon hiking along the coast... New England you really are quite the charmer. Now we just can’t wait for the colors to change ✨♥️🍁

P.s. If you haven’t checked it out yet, I finally got a new blog post up!! “On Seeing, Believing & Our Invisible Universe” *link in bio* #wildbynature

↟↟↟ "Once you become aware that most of what exists is invisible, and it’s all light, we’re talking about the vibrations of photons here, then the idea that there could be apparitions, that there could be angels, that there could be any number of beings, of processes not a part of our every day experience, becomes extraordinarily plausible.” ➳ Dr. Gary Schwartz

I heard this incredible metaphor the other day suggesting that if the amount of vibration of light (basically all things that exist) in the Universe is the size of the Empire State Building, the amount that we see with our naked eye is smaller than a grain of sand... Basically almost everything that exists in the Universe is invisible to us.

Which could be incredibly overwhelming, or deeply comforting depending on which way you decide to look at it…

↟↟↟Like wildflowers, you must allow yourself to grow in all the places people never thought you would ➳ E.V.

Happy Fall Equinox and Aries Full Moon my friends! I don’t know about you guys but I’m sooo excited for cool weather and everything comfy & cozy! Fall is my favorite season for so many reasons... the magical colors, hot apple cider, and I shamelessly love everything pumpkin..🎃

But most of all it’s my favorite season for fresh starts, rededicating intentions and goals for the remainder of the year, and embracing change. As harvest season, I can’t help but feel that for many of us the hard work we’ve put in since the beginning of the year is about to pay off. I know so many people who have spent 2018 on the grind, and I really believe in my heart that this is our season of fruition! I guess we shall see ✨♥️🍁 #wildbynature #quarteryearresolutions #fall

↟↟↟ like the sunflower, follow the light wherever it leads you...

and along the way
be gentle with yourself...

I used to let my perfectionist nature get the best of me. Because it wasn't "perfect,” nothing I ever did was good enough. But nothing is ever perfect. And so I found myself on this carousel of failure... until recently I decided to jump off.

I realized my reality was the stories I was telling myself. And so I rewrote them. I rewrote them with love for myself and my journey. The good, the bad and the ugly. Because each piece was a piece of the whole and I realized I am whole because of it all. And I rather like feeling whole.

We all admire the face of the sunflower. But where would it be without the stem from which is stands so tall, or the dirt and earth from which it sprouted, from which it grew? #wildbynature
